Watch it and love it- although this season has dragged in spots. Seems like it's picked up momentum again since the mid-winter break.

I love that show. It's the only show that I have scheduled to record every week on my dvr just in case I miss even 1 minute. I love that it isn't just a zombie show. The characters and story are really developing nicely and that's what keeps it interesting.

I wasn't aware that it was a comic though.

Can't wait for next week.

No, don't get it here, but the kid's a huge WWZ fan. We've had endless conversations about Best Places to Go in Event of Zombie Attack. We've got our mountain farm chosen. Can hole up for years.

Zombies don't like high altitudes? Is that because they come from Jamaica?

LOL. I don't know why -- ask my kid -- but apparently they don't. But they're bad at climbing because they don't think. And you want a narrow approach so you can fend off the ones that get there. Plus, you need people around you who can (a) survive a long time with limited resources and won't go all nutso on each other cuz they're used to living like that anyway, and (b) can slash away with homemade weapons without the blink of an eye (and without missing).

Hence the obvious and (for us) convenient option: your basic village in the Himalayas. No problem. The missing story in WWZ was the one from the perspective of villagers who already knew how to cope, and just holed up doing the same-old same-old, while whacking away at the occasional ugly interloper.

That's a great idea, for fun I too often think about good places but I didn't even think about the mountains. It would probably be a relatively simple task to fortify an isolated place in an elevated area with lots of cliffs and stuff around.

This reminds me of that Doomsday Preppers show that recently started airing. Basically they follow the stories of various whackjobs who all have different ideas about what to do and how to prepare for when the shit inevitably hits the fan. That's what's good about zombie movies, aside from being entertaining they also make you think about what you would do in the event of some kind of apocalyptic event. They provide a lot of insight into the idea of living in a more brutal survival situation.

Well, here’s the only road to our chosen mountain hideaway. This is the part before it gets hairy, when the road is still good. (It’s only one lane, but heck, it’s still paved. But, you will notice, easily fortified!) Our fortress redoubt is many hours up dirt hairpins from here, with a drop-off to a river on three sides. And it’s got good fertile fields and plenty of goats, so we’re set.

Apparently the zombies are much slower with cold weather.

I too love the show, and the comic books. I hope they take the show in some of the directions the books did, there are some great survival situations in play. I won't spoil them in case you have any interest in reading.

I tend to think about securing a small island. You'd have the ocean for food, plus you could garden. A few sailboats, and other types of boats, and you'd be mobile if need be. It'd be nice to somehow get some chickens to roam about for eggs and emergency meat. Fresh water might require some work but you could figure it out.

I wonder if zombies can swim?

HELL YEAH! I'm a huge fan of the whole zombie genre, I especially love all the Romero stuff. Walking Dead is easily the greatest thing on television right now. Sadly it will be over soon, but there's always looking forward to the even longer 3rd season they've signed on for. PLUS we get the final season of Breaking Bad this summer...I'm hoping for June. AMC rocks.

Tonight's episode was interesting, very different format and such than previous episodes. It's getting good, though...the buildup between Rick and Shane is getting good. I suspect they are going to kill off Shane for the season finale. Well from what I've heard it's pretty much what has to happen. Oddly enough, in the original comic Shane gets killed a long time ago, when they were still at that first base camp, by Carl no less. I wonder how they'll take him out? maybe have Lori shoot him. Maybe he'll get infected because of that open wound on his hand and turn into a walker and they'll let hershel blow his head off, just for fun.
